[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class)]
public sealed class DataBindingHandlerAttribute : Attribute

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodDataBindingHandlerAttribute()

Initializes a new instance of the DataBindingHandlerAttribute class using no parameters. This is the default constructor.

System_CAPS_pubmethodDataBindingHandlerAttribute(String)

Initializes a new instance of the DataBindingHandlerAttribute class with the specified type name.

System_CAPS_pubmethodDataBindingHandlerAttribute(Type)

Initializes a new instance of the DataBindingHandlerAttribute class of the specified Type.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyHandlerTypeName

Gets the type name of the data-binding handler.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeId

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Determines whether two object instances are equal.(Overrides Attribute.Equals(Object).)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns the hash code for this instance.(Overrides Attribute.GetHashCode().)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsDefaultAttribute()

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodMatch(Object)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubfieldSystem_CAPS_staticDefault

Defines the default attribute for the DataBindingHandlerAttribute class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount(UInt32)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

The following code example defines a data-binding handler, named MyDataBindingHandler, to be used by the designer in editing mode. On exiting the editing mode, the Text property value is displayed.


using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.Design;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.ComponentModel.Design;


namespace CustomControls
{
  [
    DataBindingHandler(typeof(MyDataBindingHandler)),
    ToolboxData("<{0}:MyLabel runat=server></{0}:MyLabel>")
  ]
  public class MyLabel : Label 
  {
    public  MyLabel()
    { 
      // Insert your code here.
    } 
  }

  public class MyDataBindingHandler : DataBindingHandler
  {
    public override void DataBindControl(IDesignerHost host, Control control)
    {
      ((Label)control).Text = "Added by data binding handler.";
    }
  }

}
